The Juliano Journal
Week of April 25-29
The school-wide spring reading program has ended. Today each child in our school had the opportunity to select a new book. They were very excited! I would like to extend a huge thank you to our school reading committee!
The students will be taking their Spring MAP tests next week. The days and times of the tests are listed below:
Monday, May 2 Math 2:00-3:00
Tuesday, May 3 Reading 2:00-3:00
Please take note of these dates and refrain from taking your child out of school at these times if possible. Thank you.
On Wednesday evening, May 4 at 6:30 p.m., the school will host an informational meeting about our multiage classrooms at Woods Creek. An email will be sent to families on May 5 with a link to express a preference via Google forms. Parents will have until May 29 to complete the Google document preference. If you have no preference, there is no need for you to complete the form.
Please remember to put Friday, May 27th on your calendar. That is the date of the Third Grade Economics Fair. Parents are invited to visit our businesses that day from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Have a great weekend!
In writing, the students continue to compose poems that will become part of their personal poetry booklets. This week they wrote acrostic poems.
We worked on our third investigation in our Ideas and Inventions unit. Perhaps, you heard the words “chromatography” and/or “pigment” at your home this week. The students performed several experiments that demonstrated how colored markers may actually consist of many pigments. The activities were really great! There will be an assessment on this unit next week.
Tuesday, May 3rd: MAP testing (Reading) 2:00-3:00
Friday, May 6th: School Spirit Day
Thursday, May 12th: Academic Night
